I wrote an entry about these two under the topic of "In-laws."

Your story would work better if you used past tense words:

Maria, Hannah’s neighbor, hastily APPROACHED the water.

You briefly mentioned the topic word of smile, but it was not the focus of your entry. The judges are looking for the topic word to be the main part of your story. You could say how many times Hannah smiled knowing she had God's favor, etc...

Keep up the writing.
You have conveyed Hannah’s heartache well. I wasn’t expecting this story when I saw your title.
Excellent job with the topic, I enjoyed your take on it. Well done,
I didn't know what the title meant. Usually it tells a little of the story line. A great start!
